When considering the perfect places to dine inexpensively in Paris, you cannot do better than to solicit the counsel of Alain Ducasse.
The Times did exactly that. Needless to say, I was pleased to find that through the improbable magic of six degrees (I haven't actually identified the stages) Mr. Ducasse agrees with me that Le Petit Vendome on 8 rue des Capucines produces the perfect sandwich.
"One Exquisite Night in Paris" relates, a bit tongue in cheek, our first experience stumbling into Le Petite Vendome and why it's become our official lunch spot whenever mid-day catches us on that side of town.
Now too we have a whole list of other suggestions to sample; excellent food without the flash and dash and price, thanks to The Times.
I'm very happy to announce that after eight months of shaping, rewriting and deleting, finally the file was submitted for final edit. My guess is that within the next weeks we'll have something publishable.
